  • Update on Continuing Systems Outage for U.S. State Department Consular Affairs
    The State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is in the process of resolving technical problems with our visa systems.  This is a worldwide problem which also affects our consular operations here in the DRC.  Biometric data is not yet processing properly to allow embassies and consulates to perform security checks required to issue visas.
    More than 100 experts in the United States are working on this problem 24/7 and we are pursuing a variety of solutions.  This week, nearly 750 temporary or seasonal workers who had been issued visas in the past were issued new visas in Mexico, and we have issued another 1,500 visas globally for urgent and humanitarian travel.  We continue to look for ways to facilitate travel as we work to restore the systems to full functionality.  
    Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas are being resolved; all applicants can schedule appointments as normal.
